Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1932. First American edition. Limited to 250 copies, signed by the author. A Fine copy with a touch of rubbing to the gilt on the spine, otherwise a brilliant copy. Only about 10% of the pages have been opened, with the vast majority of the book uncut and unread. Lacking the publisher's slipcase.

A defining moment in the genre of the dystopian novel, Brave New World considers the dangers that new technologies and mass modernization pose to the very core of humanness. Rather than depicting these developments as gateways to utopia, as writers such as H.G. Wells had done, Huxley foreshadowed how radically technology and psychological conditioning could limit individual rights ranging from sexuality and reproduction to creativity to love. A “nightmarish prognostication of a future in which humanity has been destroyed by science” (DNB).
